What customers say about "Key Specs"
Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike, Shadow
  • I am 6'2 so I am at the upper limits of the bike. It fits great and I can get some pretty good speed.
  • It's extremely agile and perfect for maneuvering on sidewalks around tourists.
  • The stock single speed ratio perfect for me.. Hill climbing isn't too hard and I'm still able to get plenty of speed.
  • It's compactness, comfort, durability and performance make it a bike worth riding.
  • I'm over 6 feet tall and can easily jack the seat up to accommodate my long legs.
Dahon Mu Uno Folding Bike, Shadow
  • The weight is only 10.15k, so you can lift it really easy.
  • It is a great bike for those senior in age who like to get around the streets in very fashionable modes of transport.
  • Fast. Bike looks and feels sturdy, strong, and fast.
  • I (a 5'6" female who is NOT strong in the arms by any means) can lift it easily and carry it comfortably up and down steps and along the train platform.
  • This is a great folding bike for commuters, like me!

What customers say about "Components"
Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike, Shadow
  • The cover around the chain is a nice touch! No grease will get on your pants!
  • The size of the wheels, and definitely the sexy matte black just make this thing look amazing.
  • Smaller wheelsmeans youll be pedaling more then a regular bike but thats ok because this thing is so compact you can keep it in your trunk with plenty of room left over.
  • A coaster brake over rim brakes is fine for me. Less junk to adjust, but it did take some time to get used to them.
  • The coaster brake is solid, but I still find the bike excellent for trips all around Portland.
Dahon Mu Uno Folding Bike, Shadow
  • And the bike handles bumps and such in the rode well, providing a very smooth and quick ride.
  • The rear brake is generally up to the job.
  • Also the Schwalbe tyres have almost no wear after riding around almost everyday for the last half year.
  • The gearing is quite low and is perfect for me, and I can still climb the hills.

What customers say about "Features"
Dahon Speed Uno Folding Bike, Shadow
  • It packs up compact enough to bring on a non-crowded bus. It could easily fit on the floor in front of a seat.
  • It's easy and quick to fold. I've folded it to carry through stores or sometimes to leave it up front where it's out of the way and nobody freaks out about a bike in their place.
  • It looks cool. I'm surprised a how many people comment on it. Somebody took a picture of me from their car today. Weird...
  • It's easy to carry folded or unfolded and a light bike is easier for hill climbing, accelerating and less fatiguing to ride.
  • I picked this specific folding bike for several reasons: it is very simple, lightweight, features and high quality.
Dahon Mu Uno Folding Bike, Shadow
  • I really love riding this beautiful bike! Is smooth, quiet, is reaaaaally easy to fold and, since there are not gears to be concerned about, the maintenance is really simple.
  • If you are seeking for a folding bike for daily commute, you like simplicity (and good design) and you plan to use it in a place with few or not hills at all, I highly recommend this bike!
  • It's really simple to fold and unfold. After practicing for about a week, I got the fold down to under 20 seconds.
  • The folding mechanisms are very sturdy and secure: no weird clanking or shaking anywhere.
  • Highly recommend them, easy to fold up and store in a bag and carry with you.
